Over at Home Depot, they have this Gearwrench Bolt Biter Gearpack tool set for just $39.99 with free shipping.
In my opinion, this is a fantastic deal even if you have zero need for Bolt Biter sockets.
This is a great deal even for just the ratchet and pliers alone!!
Here’s what you get:
- 3/8″ 90T ratchet with comfort grip
- 2pc Bolt Biter impact screwdrivers
- 2pc AutoBite adjustable pliers (8″, 10″)
- 8pc Bolt Biter extraction socket set
I wrote about this deal earlier this year, and it bounced around between $53 and $80 on Amazon since then before finally selling out recently. $40 at Home Depot with free shipping is even better!
Here’s the pricing analysis I put together last month:
The 90T ratchet is valued at roughly $43 (Home Depot) and up. The PitBull AutoBite pliers (8″ and 10″″”) are valued at $16 and $22 respectively (Amazon). The 2pc impact extraction screwdrivers are valued at ~$24 (Amazon). The Bolt Biter extraction sockets (8pc set) are valued at around $28 (Amazon).
$90 was a great price when I first bought this set. At $40, I’m wishing I didn’t already have two complete sets, so I could buy it again!
My guess is that retailers stock up on this tool set for the holidays, and it sells slowly due to the “Bolt Biter” extraction socket angle. But at this price, if you can use the ratchet (it’s a nice one!) and Auto Bite pliers (I like these too!), it’s a great value, and the extraction tools might still come in handy one day.
Thank you to Blocky for the heads-up!
